After four years as pilot program, recently, the Brazilian Patent and Trademark Office (BPTO) made the prioritized examination of “green patents” permanent.

The green technology comprises, in short, technologies that involve alternative energy, transportation, energy conservation, waste management and agriculture.

The maximum time for decisions by the BPTO in these cases has been just 2 years, whereas the average time of analysis of a patent is, currently, of 08 to 10 years.

This is excellent news that stimulates and encourages innovation in Brazil, as well as, benefits Brazilians and foreigners who have commercial interest in the country for the “green patents”.
